"The Debian Project, the team behind the free Debian GNU/Linux operating system, would like to invite you to participate in the upcoming Debian Conference which will take place from August 1 to 7, 2010, at New York City's Columbia University in cooperation with the Columbia Computer Science department. This year's conference is the first DebConf to be held in the United States in the 11-year history of the event. This year, more than 300 developers from all over the world, including Brazil, Argentina, Bosnia, Mexico, Canada, Western Europe, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Venezuela, and Latvia, will participate.

"More information is available at http://debconf10.debconf.org/.

"Every year, DebConf allows new and existing Debian project participants from around the world to assemble, share knowledge and ideas, make collaborative contributions to Debian, and build tighter community bonds. Conference costs are largely supported by corporate sponsors who find significant interest in supporting Debian and DebConfs.

"For the first time, Debconf will host "tracks", featuring a cluster of talks linked by a common theme. These include tracks on Science/Math, Java, Enterprise Systems, Debian Community Outreach, and Media and Art in Debian. Other talks will cover technical, licensing, and community issues by a host of Debian developers and other leaders in the Free Software community. Eben Moglen, Chairman of the Software Freedom Law Center and Professor of Law at Columbia University will be our plenary speaker on August 3, at 10:00 AM."
